I miss English Weather.

It rained in Fort Worth today and it actually made me realize that I actually miss English weather. Till I moved to Texas, I didn't realize it was possible to be hot and uncomfortable in a rain storm. In England, when it rains, any humidity there is breaks, the temperature drops, and it actually feels pleasant.

I was in Washington in July and it rained. When it started, I thought 'Oh good, it'll feel better now.' But no. It's the first time that I've felt hot and unpleasant in a rainstorm. If anything, the humidity got worse.

Incidentally, if you're ever in Washington, go to the Union Street Station. I can honestly say I have never seen a better station anywhere. Americans always tell me that Europe has more history. I've been to 5 or 6 countries in Europe and there isn't a station in any of those countries to compare with Washinton D.C.'s station.

In case anyone's interested in the station:
